Healthy Children

Health disparities due to funding, lack of health care, nutrition, poverty and economic factors and health systems contribute to the health issues faced by Latino children. NLCI has focused attention to the disparities and cultural nutrition issues of Latino families and their well-being by implementing the Salsa, Sabor and Salud initiative that focuses on improving nutrition and physical activities of Latino families while reinforcing the importance of making healthy food choices and increasing physical activity.

Salsa, Sabor y Salud received the 2007 American Dietetic Association/American Dietetic Association Foundation Presidents’ Circle Award for Best Nutrition Education.
